Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

cannot adapt or remove a new link in the sidebar

Postby paulaW » Tue May 15, 2007 2:39 am

We are setting up a new journal and we want to insert a link (for people who forget their password) in the sidebar. I have put the link in: ojs-2.1.0-1\templates\common\sidebar.tpl but the <> were translated in HTML code. When I uploaded the original file the link was still there (see: http://www.ejournals.nl/ijc). Only when you login the link disappears.
Can somebody please help?

Hi Paula,

Could you describe the changes you made in more detail? The best option would be to post them as a patch; to generate a patch, run this on your web server:

diff -u /path/to/unmodified/sidebar.tpl /path/to/modified/sidebar.tpl
